Former Arsenal star, Lauren Etame Meyer has joined in the rain of accolades and superlatives on fast-rising Villarreal of Spain winger, Samuel Chukwueze, as the Cameroon legend says the Super Eagles rookie has incredible skills and speed.
Footballlive.ng reports that, following another sparkling performance by Chukwueze for The Yellow Submarine in La Liga, Laurent said he was amazed at the youngster’s performance.
Lauren, who now works as a television pundit, said he was again thrilled by Chukwueze’s form with Villarreal against Huesca last weekend, after which he rated the Chile 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup revelation and gold medalist as his team’s best player in the game.
The Cameroonian legend added that Chukwueze, who has four goals this season, two in the league, one in the Europa League and one in Copa Del Rey, provides much more for Villarreal than just scoring.
Lauren added: “He is a very good footballer. Can score and also create plus he is very good with the ball at his feet.
“He is the best and probably most complete 19 year old I’ve seen in a while in the La Liga.
“Most teams need players who can offer them balance and something different in attack especially for a team like Villarreal who are use to having the ball. He compliments their style very well.”
